    I am about to reach f8 [white] with my pawn, how can I change a pawn into a queen? Admit, and thereafter you get the opportunity to choose? Is that how it works?

    After you move your pawn to the last row, hit submit, and an option appears for you to choose what piece to promote to.

    Thanks for your remarks and suggestions. ofcourse I know the rules what happeens when a pawn reaches the other end of the board, but I didn't know how it works here. Wittywonka told me exactly what I wanted to know: thanks!
